On Sunday, May 16th from 11:45-2pm, we have rented 2 lanes at the Brookfield YMCA (the pool is in the bubble, not the main building), and a BSA certified lifeguard, to complete our required swim tests for all water events with the troop this coming summer. We know this is right after the biking trip, but it was one of the few days available to us. ALL ADULTS AND SCOUTS attending water events (swimming, boating, summer camp, water park, ...) NEED TO participate in this testing.
